Paul Ryan's black cheerleader 'college sweetheart' who made him the victim of 'racist views' ...
Daily Mail ^ | August 30, 2012 | Belinda Robinson, Emily Anne Epstein and Toby Harnden

Posted on 08/30/2012 2:07:27 PM PDT by NCjim

This is the cheerleader Paul Ryan dated at college who helped forge his uncompromising opposition to racism.

The relationship and the backlash he suffered from his so-called friends were a formative experience in the political evolution of the Republican vice-presidential pick who described himself as a 'big, big fan' of Martin Luther King and is a staunch advocate of civil rights.

Today Mail Online reveals the woman whose romantic attachment led Ryan, who electrified the Republican convention in Tampa with his speech on Wednesday night, to experience racism first hand.

The Republican vice-presidential candidate dated Deneeta Pope, now 40 and a realtor living in Chicago, after they met at Miami University, Ohio in the early 1990s. Michael Steel, campaign spokesman for Ryan, today told MailOnline: 'Mr Ryan dated Ms Pope in college.'

Nothing about the economy, Afghanistan, taxes, or unemployment, just RACE, RACE and more RACE! The media’s sole focus is alluding to race on EVERYTHING to deflect us from the horrific 0bama record..

Boy!

If this is true, it's more in less than 12 hours on Ryan than over 6 years of zero.

Amazing. Paul Ryan has been in the national spotlight for just a few weeks and already a News outlet has located an old college girlfriend, with pictures.

Meanwhile Obama’s college girfriend is a ‘composite’, if she ever existed at all.

To a lot of people, it’s just fine for a white gal to date/marry a black guy. The reverse is frowned upon as a number of black guys feel the white guy has a slave, vs a trophy wife.

Why is this story even a story in this day and age??

Who cares if he dated a black woman??

I went out with a black woman at uni several times -she was my lab partner...and we developed a friendship...no difference with her than other woman I dated.

“A recent NBC News/Wall Street journal poll found that Romney had zero per cent support among black voters, though the poll had a margin of error of three per cent.”

Bigots.

Maybe with the older generation..See my post above...most people in my age group today don't care. I knew plenty of guys in HS/college who dated black women and this was never brought up or thought of.

And the number of white guys dating/marrying black women is growing...getting fairly common.

A white male dates a black female, and he's racist.

Blacks "date" the best-looking (usually blonde) female they can B.S., and it's "diversity" and "inclusion".

Sad.

“Romney has spoken proudly of the support his father George, who was governor of Michigan, gave to the civil rights campaign at a time when relatively few Republican politicians did so.”

Romney needs a history lesson.

Actually some polling is showing 20% Romney support among blacks. Black ministers were upset as they would have to perform “gay marriages” or lose tax exempt status.

Now, remind me, what was the name of the girl/guy Obama dated in college? Oh, that’s right. We’re not supposed to care or have even a passing curiosity.

"Backlash"? In Ohio in 1992? from college students?

Please. I think the Daily Mail is trading on European stereotypes about the US here.

In 1992, at any US college, there was no stigma attached to dating a hot cheerleader.

Otherwise, I'm skeptical on Obama being interested in anyone I would identify as female - transvestites and transsexuals do not count, obviously.

So, if the margin of error is 3%, does that mean Romney’s real level of support could be -3%?

Oh boy is this gal in for it.

If the media can get her to say a few well chosen words about Ryan... they don't even have to be true... it'd be worth a dozen bogus Medicare stories.

I hope she's ready for whats coming.

Unlike Liberals, we look beyond the Balkanzied group that could be exploited for political gain.

That is why interracial marriage doesn't bother me, it was what at one time used to be called "The Old American Melting Pot"

Very interesting point.

The MSM was happy to report that Ryan "had a black girlfriend".

But they had absolutely no interest in tracking her down, identifying her, reporting the circumstances of their romance, or -- great merciful heavens -- publishing a picture.

I wonder why would that be...???

Doesn't fit the Republican template. If they don't show pictures then most people won't know it or remember it.

Black women DO NOT like white women going with "their" black men, believe you me.

On the other hand, most black women would LOVE to have a white man as they view them as "nicer" than "their" black men. I was told this personally by MANY black women when I lived "in the community." Maybe politically incorrect but true. And black men DO NOT like "their" women dating white men despite today's open society.

To be fair, I'm sure that they tracked her down and investigated the story. But when the story didn't forward their agenda, they buried it. Ditto with Obama's "girl" friends. I don't think weed was the only thing Barry was smoking.

This is just one thread but most are pretty disgusting. Calling her “former black”, etc. They are the ones who need the big mirror to see the real racists.
